Thailand Bound

By: Laurie Gallardo

“They have a good time, but they’re there to see the bands.”

Cory Reinisch of Harvest Thieves traveled to Germany with fellow musicians in last year’s Project ATX6 group to experience the sights, sounds and attentive, appreciative audiences at the Reeperbahn Festival. And in a new Project ATX6 documentary video premiered today through the Austin Chronicle, Reinisch can be seen soaking up the atmosphere with the deepest reverence. It was an opportunity he didn’t think possible, yet there he was, exploring the country where his own family has roots.

The goal of Project ATX6, a local non-profit music and documentary collaboration founded and commandeered by songwriter Chris Brecht, is to showcase the variety of musical talent coming out of the ATX through performances at festivals and venues in different parts of the world. Your Austin Music Minute host even traveled with Project ATX6 to France and Toronto in 2016 as a kind of spokesperson and Austin rep on behalf of KUTX. To say it’s an incredible, emotional experience seeing artists you know from home impressing crowds halfway round the globe is an understatement.

The most recent ATX6 crew is gearing up for their next journey to Thailand for the Jai Tep Festival in Chiang Mai, starting Jan. 31. But before the big trip, you can catch members of Project ATX6 at their show tonight at Hops & Grain, 507 Calles St., Ste. 101. It’s an early show, kicking off at 7 p.m., featuring Altamesa (the track “Idol Frontier” was on today’s AMM), Kathryn Legendre, and Pocket Sounds. Send the gang off in style and find out how you can support Project ATX6. Recommended.

What’s Yr Damage

Following the breakup of their previous psych-gaze band Creepoid, Anna and Patrick Troxell forged an electro post-punk dynamic as the duo Lovelorn. And now the ATX-by-way-of Philly outfit is ramping things up with two new additions to the line-up, guitarists Steve Pike and Kyle Harris. No doubt extra shreds will add even more discordant dimensions […]
